This just may be me, but to have three FWD and only one AWD with the highest HP seems not to make too much sense. It seems to me that most people would prefer AWD with less HP and more range...no?

Perhaps an AWD Premier version is in future plans...hope so.

What are your thoughts?

It appears other markets have more AWD options, so presumably the US will too eventually... For me, I actually want FWD. Less common use case, but in addition to being my daily driver I'll also be towing it on a dolly behind my RV.

There are 6 models listed on the website link below, so either the other 2 will be available later, or it was an error. However, the other AWD model (270 miles) is still shown as the same power rating. Because the US is so power rating focused, I guess they wanted to have only the high power one at this time. The UK site shows a lower power AWD model and they have more colors and options, but EVs sell more in Europe.


While there might be more choices one or two years from now, the tax credit will likely run out, which is why I'm putting reservations on what I might be interested in, so at least I have a chance to buy before the credit runs out. I'm not commited to buy just by having a reservation.

IMO it’s a bit strange to pigeonhole the AWD option to the top trim, especially for market where most of it has to deal with winter weather.

I’m thinking we’ll see some expanded trim options once the Premiere trims aren’t a configurable option. An AWD Evolve+ seems like it’d be a hot seller.
